    Indigenous Australians 'had their own stories that explained the origin of the world, themselves and all that make up the world that provided Aboriginal people with a strong and close association with the land for thousands of years. These stories gave unity and purpose to Aboriginal Societies in the past and are important today in maintaining their identity.'
